Ola, a Nigerian teenager, has claimed that she will never divorce her abusive husband until he brings another woman into their home disrespectfully.
It can be remembered that veteran Nollywood actor Pete Edochie urged Nigerian women not to divorce their husbands because of infidelity, but instead to pack condoms in their pockets.
According to the star, once a cheating man sees the condom his wife put in his pocket, he will understand she has his best interests at heart and will reconsider engaging in extramarital affairs.
“If you think your husband leaves the house and says he is going on a tour and he is going to have an affair outside, put a packet of condom in his bag. When he sees it, psychologically, he is going to think this woman has my interest at heart. If it is his intention to stray, he’ll pull himself together.” he said.
Ms Ola supported Edochie’s advice, saying that she will not divorce her husband because of extramarital affairs but will instead supply him with condoms to protect herself from STDs.
“Pete Edochie is right. I ‘m not leaving my home because of another woman. I will only divorce my husband if he disrespectfully brings her home. I have said this severally, no way! Even the condom, I will supply him with it cuz I need to protect myself indirectly too” she wrote.
Ola further said most women won’t leave their husbands over infidelity because of the stigma attached to divorce.
“The earlier we realise that marriage is not all rosy the better for us. May we never end up with a partner (he/she) who bring shame to us. African setting won’t even let you leave your home cuz he cheated. So it’s not easy to walk away.”
“But as Africans we are used to pretending. Let’s not deny the fact that many married women are aware that their husbands are cheating. Why are they still in tha marriage. We all make divorce seem easy.”
